State Representative Doris Goodale's Kids Popped for Heroin Trafficking

The Kingman Police Department wrapped up a three-month investigation into heroin trafficking last week, leading to the arrests of five people -- two of them children of a state legislator.

Michael Randolph Goodale, 27, and Stephanie Lynn Goodale, 31 -- both of whom call Republican state Representative Doris Goodale "mom" -- were hit with four felony drug charges a piece.

According to Kingman police, the investigation was centered on people bringing "substantial amounts" of heroin from Las Vegas to Kingman to sell to dealers and users.

Michael Goodale and three of the other people arrested were popped near Highway 68 in Golden Valley as the buyers and sellers were meeting, and Goodale's identified as one of the alleged buyers of the heroin coming from Vegas.

His sister was arrested at a house in Kingman.

Police served search warrants on two cars and a house owned by Representative Goodale and her husband -- where the son also lived -- and some unspecified drug evidence was picked up there.

Cops recovered a half-ounce of heroin, $6,000, and two cars from their haul.

Representative Goodale's husband, William Goodale, is a member of the Kingman Unified School District Board.

The Goodale kids won a trip to the Mohave County Jail, and face charges of possession of narcotic drugs for sale, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and trafficking in narcotic drugs.
